Local elections: Why did Boston vote for UKIP?

3 May 2013 Last updated at 13:28 BST

People in Boston, Lincolnshire, have told the BBC why they think the UK Independence Party made gains in Thursday's county council elections.

UKIP made gains across Lincolnshire, ensuring the Conservatives lost overall control. Three members of the same family won seats for the party in Boston.

Immigration is a big issue in Boston, which the 2011 census revealed had the largest number of non-British EU passport holders outside of London.

UKIP won five of the seven seats in the town.
